|Mandolin for Sale|
Classical Junior Mandolin #203 $3300 (includes case) ***SOLD***
Note that because of the rosewood bindings, this mandolin is only available to Australian customers. All rosewoods are now listed on CITES Appendix II.
New Classical Junior mandolin in a Goldfinch configuration. This is the first Classical Junior, and judging from the results there will certainly be many more to follow. This is an astonishingly good mandolin. Typical beautiful clear sweet tone of a Goldfinch, but more responsive, loud and massive ring and sustain. Gorgeous, I love it! Comes with an archtop plywood case which together with the mandolin makes a lovely lightweight package. Perfect for carrying around the festivals. Superb mandolin for playing those celtic tunes, but probably not so well suited for classical music. I tried Thomastic strings, but for some unknown reason they really don't work well on this mandolin. Neck is 30mm at the nut, and it comes with a brand new adjustable Brekke bridge that Vern especially designed for me.
Woods are King Billy Pine top, Tasmanian Blackwood back, sides and neck, Indian Rosewood bindings, Blackheart Sassafras pickguard, and Ebony fingerboard and headstock overlay. Golden age tuners, and custom made tailpiece.
Sound clip coming soon (i.e. when I get my recording setup working again).
